… now I understand what you went through.

Unfortunately, I wasn't aware of those instructions, and that looks utterly
buggy. How can we claim to publish “official images” that are snapshots, built
using debian-installer daily builds, that can be broken by random packages in
unstable, and left unfixed for weeks?!

We already have specific instructions on the d-i page[1] regarding
*actual* official releases (as soon as testing gets an Alpha 1), plus
snapshots. My first instinct would be to entirely scrap testing-related
things from the page you started from[2], and just redirect to [1]

 1. https://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/
 2. https://www.debian.org/CD/http-ftp/

That link should be updated too… http://debian-cd.debian.net/
